Compact-sized iPad

Display, processor and OS
The iPad mini is the first compact edition of the iPad. It sports a 7.9-inch LED-backlit IPS LCD capacitive touch screen. Though it's 0.9-inch larger than standard 7-inch tablets, it offers 35% more surface area, 50% more browsing area in portrait mode and 67% more in landscape mode, in comparison to other tablets of the same size. The iPad mini is just 7.2 mm thick and weighs 308g. Underneath the hood lies an Apple A5 chipset consisting of a dual-core 1GHz Cortex-A9 processor and 512MB of RAM.

Camera and storage
The tablet packs in a 5MP rear camera with features like geotagging, touch-to-focus, face detection, full HD recording and video stabilisation. It also features a 1.2 MP front camera which can record videos in 720p and can be used for FaceTime too. Internal storage is just 16GB, and there is no microSD card slot for expansion either.

Connectivity
The base model of the iPad mini offers Bluetooth, WiFi, GPS and USB 2.0. Battery life is around 10 hours.

Verdict

For users who wanted an iPad but refrained from buying one due to its bigger size, the iPad Mini is a good option. The feature-packed tablet is more affordable than its bigger sibling too.

    After months of speculation, the iPad Mini has gone on sale with a 7.9-inch screen. Is it a Google Nexus 7 beater though?...

    Pros: 4:3 screen ratio ; Battery Life ; Weight

    Cons: Lower res screen than rivals ; Price ; No headphones included

    Verdict: We`d go as far as saying that the iPad Mini is our favourite iPad yet. The smaller size, thinner shape and lighter weight makes for a much better mobile experience. It`s easy to hold and manipulate in the hand but feels durable and well-built enough ...

  • The original iPad mini is still good, apart from that screen

    Last year Apple went where I never thought it would, with the iPad mini bringing the Apple tablet experience to a brave new budget world. Now usurped by the new iPad Mini 2, the older tablet is still on sale at a wallet-friendly £249 for the basic version, with 16GB of storage on offer for the Wi-Fi version on Apple`s site (although it can be had slightly cheaper if you shop around). You can also add 4G cellular, which brings the price up t...

    Pros: Superb design, Great battery, Extremely light and portable,

    Cons: Smaller touch targets, Higher price than competition, Low-res screen,

    Verdict: The iPad mini ushered in a major change for Apple and aside from the slightly disappointing screen we loved this tablet. It`s now been usurped by the iPad mini 2 with Retina display, so it`s really only there for those on a budget....

    Overall: If u r a true geek don't buy this ever, and don't buy any apple product

    No flash memory - you can't store any file which is unsupported by iPad format
    Every transfer require iTunes n thus a computer
    U can send only one attachment at a time in a email except photo n videos
    U can't transfer MS Office files even until n unless u buy supporting softwares which cost 1650 rs

    Very restricted, if u r geek then u will feel suffocated

    Buy - if u have to go for good responsive display, music quality, good processing, play games

    Kick - if u r real techie

  • iPad Mini vs Nexus 7 Comparison Review

    iPad Mini vs Nexus 7 Comparison Review

    Reviewed On: amazon.in

    Overall: Amazon is offering this, the older version of iPad Mini, at an exceptional price (below INR 20,000), which became even more lucrative with an ongoing offer on my credit card. This brings it very close to Nexus 7 territory and in case you are wondering which one to buy, read on!

    I was a little apprehensive ordering from an unknown seller initially, given that every other retailer was selling it at well above 20K. Decided to go ahead purely on Amazon's reputation and my long standing experience of ordering through their US and Indian websites. I was glad I did, because the product I received is genuine (the seller in my case was 'Compushop'). Amazon did a good job of delivering it within 2 days and kept me updated on the status throughout.

    ==========

    Here are some quick thoughts after using it for a little over 1 week:-

    **Screen**

    I love the 7.9 inch formfactor, which is wider than the Nexus 7, resulting in 35% more on-screen real-estate. Yet, it comfortable enough to hold with one hand for long periods of time. The wide screen makes it feel more 'book-like' than the Nexus 7. I personally think Apple has cracked this feature (pun unintended!) - it has achieved the perfect trade-off between portability and screen size.

    The new iPad Mini comes with a Retina display, which is twice as sharp as this model. Even the new Nexus 7 screen is much sharper. That said, this display is not bad, particularly if you haven't used any of the Retina iOS devices or aren't comparing them side by side. Videos and photos are quite decent (unless you are playing true 1080p video, it's hard to notice any difference). Text is definitely much sharper on the new one, however given the price difference, I think you'll be happy with this one.

    So unless you are obsessed with the ppi count (pixels per inch, in case you wondering), I would recommend this over the Nexus 7. Trust me, the bigger screen matters... a lot.

    iPad Mini - 1, Nexus 7 - 0

    **Build Quality**
    iPad Mini, like all iPads, comes with a brushed aluminium back that looks sleek and beautiful. Nexus 7 has a rubberized plastic back, which is great but not half as sexy as the iPad. Build quality on both tablets is very good, I don't think you'll be unhappy with either.

    The side bezel on iPad Mini is incredibly thin, which is what enables Apple to provide such a large screen in a smallish form factor. Neither tablet is uncomfortable to hold in one hand. However, Apple has customized the software so that if you are holding the tablet with your thumb resting on the screen, it won't register the touch. This feature is not available on the Nexus.

    Overall, iPad Mini trumps over the Nexus 7 in build quality for sure.

    iPad Mini - 2, Nexus 7 - 0

    **Battery Life**
    Both tablets pack enough juice to keep you going all day with normal use. I've not run any tests, but from experience, the iPad Mini battery seems to last slightly longer than the Nexus 7. This is not to say that the Nexus 7 battery is bad, it's still better than many other tablets in the market.

    I'm going to declare a tie since both offer adequate battery life.

    iPad Mini - 2.5, Nexus 7 - 0.5

    **Music**
    Music sounds much better on the iPad than comparable android devices (incl. the Nexus 7), which is not surprising given that Apple revolutionized this market and continues to dominate it in every segment. Yes, iTunes can be a pain sometimes and there are other options to transfer music, but from experience I would recommend using iTunes to non tech-savvy people. There are just too many issues that keep cropping up with using other methods. Android has iOS beat in this - all it takes is a simple copy paste to put music on the Nexus 7.

    Overall, it's another tie between the two. Music sounds better on the iPad but transferring music is much easier on the Nexus 7 - go for the one you prefer.

    iPad Mini - 3, Nexus 7 - 1

    **Reading & Browsing**

    iBooks takes ebooks in ePub format and its easy to sideload books that you already have. Unlike music, transferring books onto the iPad is just as easy as it is on the Nexus.

    I prefer browsing in potrait mode and the iPad mini allows you to see more content than a comparable 7 inch tablet because of its wider screen. It's easy to zoom into any section by double-tapping on it and the interface is smooth and responsive.

    Unfortunately, Apple products do not offer built in support for flash, so some websites won't display properly. However, the web is slowly but steadily moving towards HTML5 and the absence of flash support is not likely to prove too much of a hindrance as time goes by. And this is not specific to iOS, Adobe has stopped supporting flash on Android as well.

    Again, I'm going with the iPad in this segment purely because of the larger screen. If you are OK with the Nexus 7 screen size, go for it. Text is much sharper on the Nexus.

    iPad Mini - 4, Nexus 7 - 1

    **Games/Apps**

    This iPad Mini comes with Apple's A5 dual core processor, which is also featured in iPhone 5. It's a little old, but still has enough juice to run most games and apps without any lag. Unless you are an avid gamer and play games with very demanding graphics, you won't notice any difference. However, this is one area where the Nexus 7 beats the iPad Mini squarely.

    Compared to the android space where most of the apps are not optimized for running on a tablet, there are no such concerns here. Almost all popular apps in iTunes have a specific version that is optimized for the iPad.

    Overall, Nexus 7 scores with a much faster processor (Quad-core 1.5 Ghz vs. Dual-core 1.0 Ghz) and a humongous RAM (2 GB vs. 512 MB), while the iPad scores on the back of a much more vibrant app space. I would go with the Nexus in this segment, as the app space in Android is sure to catch up and the Nexus hardware specs make it more future-proof.

    iPad Mini - 4, Nexus 7 - 2

    **Camera**

    In good light conditions, photos turn out very well on the iPad Mini. Low light photography may not be up to par when compared with current generation iPads, but it's still better than the current generation Nexus 7.

    Videos can be recorded in full 1080p. Do keep in mind that 1080p videos require an incredible amount of space and will fill up your storage space in a jiffy. For typical usage conditions, 720p would be more than adequate.

    No comparison here - iPad mini beats the Nexus 7 camera hands down.

    iPad Mini - 5, Nexus 7 - 2

    ==========
    Final Score

    iPad Mini - 5
    Nexus 7 - 2

    Well, the iPad Mini comes out the clear winner in the head-to-head. However, do keep in mind that I went for the iPad over the Nexus in the Screen and Reading/Browsing segments, which comes down to personal preference. It could easily have been 4-3 in favour of the Nexus 7 if you don't mind the narrower screen.

    ==========

    All things considered, I'm very satisfied with the purchase. Why 4 stars then? Well, I was tempted to give it 5 stars purely because the price drop makes it incredible value, especially considering you get much better build quality than the Nexus 7 (not to forget the bragging rights!). However, I'll stick with 4 stars because of the lower resolution screen and below par RAM, which makes it very likely that the growth in app demands will outpace the hardware shortcomings sooner rather than later.

    I hope this review proves to be helpful. In case you have any specific queries, do leave a comment below and I'll be happy to respond asap.
